AWP’s Essential Back To School Stationery Checklist 2022

Waterproof, durable back to school stationery that's built to last. Find the perfect waterproof notebooks, binders, pens & pencils for the new school term.

With the back to school season in full swing, you’re likely to be looking for all those last minute essentials. One of the most important school supplies to get sorted is of course stationery. Rather than running around the shops, or spending hours browsing online, why not get the basics sorted right now with Any Weather Paper? Unlike cheaply made school supplies, our back to school stationery is built to withstand the wear and tear of everyday school life. The all-weather paper used in our waterproof notebooks, and for our loose leaf paper, is tear-resistant, smudge -resistant, and the best part? It’s 100% waterproof. This means that notes can be written both outdoors as well as indoors, and will not tear, smudge or disintegrate, even if covered in water. These are our top 5 back to school stationery essentials:

All-Weather Universal Waterproof Notebook

There are plenty of notebooks out there, and so what’s important is choosing the right one. At Any Weather Paper, we stock a whole range of waterproof notebooks, from pocket notebooks to specialist sports and expeditions journals. The reason we’ve chosen the All-Weather Universal Notebook specifically to include in our back to school stationery checklist is its practical size and features. The notebook is 8.75" x 11" x .5", with 84 lined pages, providing plenty of room for making detailed, organised notes. It also includes imperial and metric rulers, as well as a conversion table. All pages are of course waterproof, along with the Polydura cover and rust-resistant spiral binding. The All-Weather Universal Notebook is also available with stapled rather than spiral binding in a slightly smaller size, if this is more convenient for packing in smaller school backpacks.

All-Weather Loose Leaf Paper

Ruled loose leaf paper is really useful for making revision notes, brainstorming, and creating notes that you can then file into separate subject folders. Rite In The Rain (RITR) Waterproof Loose Leaf Paper features universal lines, as well as faint grid detailing, making the sheets equally well suited to written subjects as they are for maths and science. The benefit of using loose leaf paper that is waterproof for your back to school stationery is that you don’t need to worry about important work being ruined by rain, accidents, or spillages, such as a drinks bottle leaking in your bag. You can file them in an All-Weather Ring Binder for extra protection, which we’ll come onto in just a second. You can also use Waterproof Printer Paper to print your work and resources on, ensuring they don’t tear or smudge on route to school or in the classroom.

All-Weather Durable Pen

All RITR waterproof paper products are best used with waterproof writing materials. The All-Weather Durable Pen is our top choice for back to school stationery. Featuring a comfortable grip channel that makes writing easy, this clicker pen is easily reloadable with ink replacements and features a pressurised ink cartridge that won’t burst in hot or cold temperatures. A useful pocket clip is attached to the top of the pen, which can write through water, sweat, grease and mud, making it perfect for use with a waterproof notebook on outdoor field trips. The pen is available in both black and red ink

All-Weather Mechanical Clicker Pencil

For those who prefer to write with pencil, or require it for certain subjects, such as maths, the RITR Mechanical Clicker Pencil is certainly one not to be missed off your back to school stationery checklist. Featuring a dark lead that marks boldly and will not break, this mechanical clicker pencil is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. A durable ABS barrel ensures the pencil will not snap, and a knurled metal grip makes it easy to hold and comfortable to write with. It’s simple to load a new lead into the pencil and it features an in-built eraser, in case you need to remove any mistakes!
